Define your genre in five words or less:

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

Charles Jenkins is clear on the highlight of each year’s Winter Ball.  “It’s that two hours when I’m up on stage, performing – that’s really rewarding” Jenkins says.  “There’s a lot of organisation that goes into the Winter Ball, and I’ve got some great people helping out with the event, and doing the things that I couldn’t do.  But just to get up there and play for a couple of hours, with all...

St Kilda's Pure Pop Records are the trifecta; record store, cafe, and live music venue in one. However, in order to keep it that way (and the neighbours happy) owner Dave Stevens has organised Raise the Roof at the Prince Bandroom, to help fund the store's renovations.


The evening will see performances from acts such as Ron S Peno & The Superstitions, Henry Wagons, The...

At the third annual Winter Ball event, host and super-connected musician, Charles Jenkins once again rallied Melbourne's finest for a heart and hand warming night of song. 


Jenkins' band The Zhivagos are joined throughout by enough guest artists to bash out a modern day Do They Know It's Christmas at the drop of a hat - which we are thankfully spared. Instead, the desperate to...
